Happy New Year! I can’t believe 2017 is already here!
The long nights are here (as well as the cold and snow!) and my husband and I have been brewing a lot and I mean a lot over this last year. We hosted a large Yule party this year with lots of food and drink to fuel partygoers with something delicious, seasonal and warming.
